REVIEW: Possession of a Highlander By Madeline Martin

Brianna Lindsay's grip on the inheritance that is rightly hers hangs by a thread. If the town finds out her father has died, Brianna will be forced into marriage with her loathsome cousin, Lord Robert, and will lose all of Edzell Castle and its lands. To protect her home, she'll have to trust a complete stranger, a brooding Highland barbarian who sweeps into Edzell with a small retinue and insists on replacing her Captain of the Guard. He proves his worth by defeating her men and she has no choice but to accept his offer.

Though his motives are suspect, Colin MacKinnon has nobility in his blood and good intentions in coming to Edzell. He seeks his own kingdom, one to rival his father's, and sets out to conquer Brianna in the best way he knows how―with seduction.

Brianna never thought of all the wealth she protects, the one thing she has left completely vulnerable is her heart. Colin never thought that of everything he stands to achieve, he might have to face the unexpected pain of loss. Together, they must navigate a treacherous world of spies and intrigue, of legacy and fidelity, of love and betrayal, to find what is truly worth possessing.

This was a really amazing novel. I loved the story and the fact that Colin character was using the natural highlander accent. I had to reread to get what he was saying at first. But it added charm to it. Ive never read a book where you could read the accent.
 The story was amazing two completely opposite souls. Who are so similar in their birth but are yet to even know it til halfway through the story.
 Colin oh my.what a strong stubborn and protective man with the sexyness to boot.
 Brianna she has such a strong demeaner that masks her sensitivity to all the things that have gone wrong in her life. One thing after another happens making her think she is doomed.Maybe she is.
 I was on the edge of my seat with this book. FUll of fighting, mystery and intrique as well as romance. This is a five star novel for sure. I cant wait to read more from this remarkable author.
5 stars
